Biography

Since forming in 2006, the Letter Black have proven to be one of the hardest working bands in Christian hard rock, often playing as many as 150 shows a year. The group first took shape at a local church in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, where vocalist Sarah Anthony formed a praise team with her husband. Named Breaking the Silence, the duo eventually grew into a full-fledged rock band, with Sarah steering the band's sound in a manner reminiscent of Evanescence and Paramore. Husband Mark Anthony handled guitar duties, and rounding out the five-piece lineup were co-guitarist Terry Johnson, bassist Matt Beal, and drummer Mat Slagle. After proving their merit on the road, the bandmates signed with Tooth & Nail and went into the studio to work with producer Toby Wright, known for his work with artists like Korn and Alice in Chains. The band released a six-song EP, Breaking the Silence, in 2009. Johnson left the lineup that same year and was temporarily replaced by touring guitarist Ty Dietzler, who played with the group during a nationwide tour opening for Skillet. After returning home, the Letter Black slimmed down to a quartet for the recording of Hanging on by a Thread, which marked their full-length debut in 2010. Released on Tooth & Nail, Hanging on by a Thread peaked at ten on Billboard's Christian charts. Three years later, the group released Rebuild, which was their last for Tooth & Nail. During 2016, the group launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the recording and release of their third album. Entitled Pain, the self-released record appeared in May 2017. ~ Gregory Heaney & Andrew Leahey
